Just before Christmas Bishop Kieran celebrated Mass at English Martyrs Catholic Primary School, Worthing, on 4th December, 40 years to the day that the then Bishop of Arundel, the Right Reverend Michael Bowen, opened the school. The Mayor and Mayoress of Worthing also attended the Mass. A Silver Birch tree seed from Buckingham Palace was planted in a pot.

Once the seed has grown into a sapling the Bishop will return to plant it in the school grounds. The Bishop will also be returning to the school in the Spring term to officially open their new library and research centre to commemorate their 40th Anniversary.
